Following surgery, Tim Marman needed 54 staples to seal an incision
in his mid-body, a new world record. The staples ran from his upper
abdomen, down and around the belly button to the upper groin area. Tim
Marman was declared to be free of cancer upon completion of the surgery.
The record was set on June 4, 2009 in New York, New York. Tara Licata
was present as a witness.
